Youth Conference shows students the power of their actions
This year's Youth Conference empowered student leaders to become active global citizens and a voice for justice in the world.
Students were inspired by speakers Lena, Simon and Kevin. Lena and Simon shared stories of fleeing to Australia after conflict forced them to leave their home countries, and Kevin – 2018 Northern Territory Young Australian of the Year – spoke passionately about his work supporting people seeking asylum.
Future leaders from Years 8 to 12 participated in interactive workshops, collaborating to identify possible solutions to world issues, building their leadership skills and learning how they can make a difference – starting now. Students emerged from the day with the knowledge and passion to put their skills into action by leading this year's 40 Hour Famine Backpack Challenge.
Youth Conference 2019 details are coming soon.
